The gang was very comfortably situated in the mega-van.
Lots of wind in Kansas.
For 16 1/2 hours in the van, the kids were remarkably well-behaved and pleasant. Everyone was great, but Faith and Cannon in the far back seat were especially easy-going. I kind of missed them all the way back there.
Even with room to spread out, everyone gathered close to watch The Muppet Movie.
Abe drove the whole way. All 1000 plus miles. I would like it to be known that I am willing to drive, but he loves driving on long road trips and doesn't want to share driving responsibilities. I'm fine with it, because although I am willing, I do not particularly enjoy driving on long road trips. Also, do you see that silver open container in his hand? (Ooh, that doesn't sound good)--It's Diet Pepsi. He can drive a long way on a steady supply of Diet Pepsi
We pulled into Wichita about 10:30 pm Central time, got comfortably settled at Russell and Melissa's home (Abe's brother) and conked out.
When we did this trip three years ago I was a diligent blogger each day. I don't know that I'll do that this go round, but we'll see.
